As multinational organizations need to compete in an increasingly complex and highly dynamic environment, it is essential that they employ the right people to manage and support their international operations. Thus, international human resource management (IHRM) plays an important strategic role by ensuring the smooth integration across international subsidiaries and preparing employees to handle the challenges associated with working in a global context.
This course is designed to provide you with a better understanding of the various IHRM principles and practices. We will discuss some of the differences in HR approaches around the world, but the majority of the course content will focus on examining the role of HRM in multinational organizations. We will cover topics such as global staffing, expatriation, global performance management and compensation, as well as global human resource development. The course is highly interactive and is designed to maximize student learning and create a positive environment by balancing time dedicated to lecture, cases, discussions, and engaging exercises.
